. he has done it to damascus, now he is doing it here. president obama today drew a red line here at home. any republican who tries to bring this country into the default, fails to pay interest on the national debt is the enemy. there will be no deals, the president says, no talks, no schmoozes, no bedtime stories, no nothing. you are cut off. america will pay its debts. it will not default. it will not destroy its credit in the world. and you can threaten. you can scream and yell, but the united states government will not fail in the bankruptcy because of this economic terrorism you on the right purport to be a political philosophy. well, the secretary of the treasury said it less dramatically this morning, but said it just as clearly. any attempt by the right wing to threaten this country with national default will be met with the strongest response, no deals. bashar al assad in damascus, but against those in this country who would jeopardize the country's financial strength. joining me right now are two political pros, democrat steve mcmahon, and republican john fayry. treasury
is beginning to take shape around, yes, of course, the repeal of obama care. and last night at a heritage foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation sa
, beck, or o'reilly. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. and this is how a country declines. this is how we become a weak nation. >> so if you need food stamps, you're a parasite. that wasn't exactly his language when he supported billions of dollars to bail out bankers in need. but this is the heartless talk we keep hearing from the right. and bill o'reilly is hardly alone. tea party senator rand paul is comparing the use of food stamps to slavery. in an interview he said access to food and water is not a right, because, quote, once you conscript people and say oh, it's a right, then really you're in charge. it's servitude. you're in charge of me, and i'm supposed to do whatever you want to tell me to do. so if you take food stamps, you're accepting servitude. senator, what about if you're hungry? and it doesn't stop at food stamps. here is what republican congressman dave joyce was caught on tape saying about the unemployed. >> there's three million jobs every month in this coun
intelligence. >>> kristen welker is in martha vineyards where president obama is vacationing. what are lawmakers saying to you about this latest threat? >> reporter: alex, good day to you. lawmakers seem to be on the same page. closing the 19 embassies was the right move because it pointed to the fact that al qaeda was planning either one large explosion or a series of explosions. here's a little bit more on that from congressman peter king. take a listen. >> the intelligence that i saw here was at least as powerful as anything i've seen since 9/11, probably the closest would be the liquid explosive plot out of london in 2006. but this was very credible. it was corroborated and spoke of a massive attack and to me was the right thing to do. >> now, alex, some republicans did use the closure of those 19 embassies to attack president obama's foreign policy center. john mccain making a point that the peninsula has gotten much stronger in recent years and also argue that it's an indication that president obama hasn't been strong enough in terms of combatting that growing presence and th
officials say once they get the order they could be ready to go within hours but while obama administration officials continue to verbally hammer bashar al assad we're still waiting to get the hard evidence that he's responsible. the latest warning to syria comes directly from the white house. >> those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children, should and must be held accountable. >> reporter: another sign to expect action, u.s. officials all but telling u.n. inspectors, get out of the way. >> and it's clear the security situation isn't safe for the team in syria. >> reporter: the defense secretary told the bbc u.s. ships are positioned, preparations complete. >> we are ready to go. >> reporter: and a defense official tells cnn if the president chooses the most limited option, it could be over in two to three days. cruise missiles could target syria's weapons launchers and command and control facilities, but that's it. >> the options we are considering are not about regime change. >> reporter: and this some say could backfire on the white house. >> it may give bas
. >> meanwhile the "san francisco chronicle" reports many people uninformed about obama care are falling prey to scams. the scams can take the form of e-mails or phone calls from people pretending to be representatives of the federal government and even solicitors going door to door trying to sign people up for fake medical cards or seeking personal information. what do you think about what's going to happen this fall? >> oh. it's hard to predict. obviously with respect to the budget showdown i don't think the president is going to budge. i don't see why he will or would because this his signature legislation. if they're saying delay the thing for a year i doubt that he would do that. but, you know, the weekly radio address was very interesting in part because we're at this point right now where there is a, you know, sabotaging going on of the plan or an attempt. the biggest move is to get people to burn their obama care cards as if they exist but encourage young people not to sign up, avoid the exchanges as a way to make sure the overall bill is sabotaged. this is a very critical juncture an
cancelinging president obama's planned bilateral talks with his russian counterpart. president obama and vladimir putin were expected to sit down and discuss, among other things, syria's ongoing civil war. the kremlin said it is disappointed by the cancellation. the decision reportedly unanimous by the president's national security team. the icy standoff rekindles a debate between mitt romney and president obama during the 2012 campaign. >> this is to russia that this is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. they fight every cause for the world's worst actors. the idea that he has more flexibility in mind for russia is very, very troubling, indeed. >> governor romney, i'm glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single
will do but because he embraced obama had his state was in turmoil, he is apparently not a good guy. neil: they claim you were there guy, you got to washington, you know, youre all about getting things done, i can understand the frustration, saying that you are not parroting every one of our causes, you are almost dammed if you do, dammed if you don't. >> that is okay, i'm an american first, so is chris christie and rand fall and others, we're different people, and -- >> i think it will is bigger than that. have you a better read you are closer to the fire. but it seems when the nastiness is out in particular with chris christie and paul, that is not dying down. >> to have someone like me talking about unifying the country, putting our country first not our political personal interests, we'll see if that resonates with people, there is a void with extremes on the left and the right. neil: where do you feel it? would a president brown, be against providing more aid to egypt. >> i would look at all of the aid we're providing every country, do that top to bottom review, in my estimation ther
to defund obama care. so ted cruz, he's a player. >> just ask him. >> no. listen, he's going to iowa and people are going -- >> people like him. people are excited about him. >> why? >> i think he taps into -- >> because he's a cade nade yan. >> the sinking sarah palin base, people that were excited about sarah palin, have now transferred to ted cruz. >> and michele bachmann. >> so that is a vibrant part of the republican party, love them or hate them, they look every two to four years for someone that will champion their animosity towards the large federal bureaucracy. >> it's resentment. >> animosity. >> resentment. but it's the sarah palin supporters, the herman cain supporters in a sense the donald trump supporters. you line them all up and that's -- and we have people going out there -- who knows. maybe cruz is going towards 2016 more powerful because instead of tripping over, you know, sarah palin and herman cain and michele bachmann and all these other people, maybe he has that space all to himself. >> but what -- >> and then there's rand paul the libertarian. >> which is so m
obama will present the highest military honor to staff sergeant ty carter. the army says carter killed enemy fighters, risked his own life to save a wounded surgery. carter will be the fifth living recipient of the award for service in iraq or afghanistan. >>> check out a cat getting in trouble. he manages to use his paws. this, i didn't see you there. i'm sorry. let me put that back where it was. cats have so much personality. they often don't get credit for their smartness. >> you should get credit for your cat voice. >> maybe i should look into doing voice overs. >> you don't have enough to do in your day? >> i have free time. >>> when we come back the donald now the defendant in a $40 million lawsuit over his real estate school. is it a scam? we have the details ahead. >>> forget the winners at the mtv music awards. the buzz is all about miley, gaga. everything you need to know about the big show. peace of mind is important when you're running a successful business. so we provide it services you can rely on. with centurylink as your trusted it partner, you'll experience reliable up
as the drumbeat to war with syria gets louder. wall street suffered its worst day since june as the obama administration clearly laid the groundwork for a possible military strike on syria. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable. >> market analyst todd schoenberger is "outfront" with us tonight. thank you for being here. how much of this market drop had to do with what you heard from the vice president and the president and the administration about oil in the region? >> quite a bit because it's a grave concern for everybody at wall street. it was top of mind when we heard about it from biden but now when we're hearing about the war drums that are beating today and we can only anticipate that president obama will be making a decision, probably by tomorrow and even by thursday, clearly there's a lot of uncertainty tonight on wall street. >> looking ahead how high do you t
, this is obama presidency, second term legacy building. this is a chance for the attorney general, eric holder, who is probably leaving office in the next few months and for the president to do something i think they want to be remembered for. this is something the president and the attorney general apparently have been talking about for several years. so you see i think an effort here on the part of the attorney general eric holder to leave office perhaps with something other than fast and furious to be remembered by. >> it's a huge deal. i was a little surprised that eric holder made the announcement instead of the president of the united states. you've covered the justice department and you're new to cnn, you use to work at the wall street journal. were you a little surprised the president let eric holder do this as opposed to the president making the announcement? >> i think it's one of those things that the president of the white house wanted to make sure the attorney general gets some kind of press conference, something he can be remembered for other than. so scandals. >> excellent point
'm gretchen carlson. thanks for spending part of it with us today. president obama giving president putin the cold shoulder to get back at him for harboring n.s.a. leaker edward snowden. is that the right call or wrong one? >>steve: a 13-year-old white boy brutally beaten by african-american teens. why are civil rights leaders like al sharpton and jesse jackson silent? we'll report, you decide. >> we have a winner. three winners actually. are you one of them. we'll tell you where the winning powerball tickets were sold which is on "fox & friends," and we begin right now. ♪ ♪ >>gretchen: i'm surprised you're at work today, steve. two tickets in jersey. you have to be one of them. >>steve: when i got up this morning and heard the news there were two in new jersey, i immediately pulled it out. ladies and gentlemen, i hold in my hand a losing ticket. there are also a whole bunch of million-dollar winners and some people won hundreds of dollars. so i'm going to be watching in a second because heather has the numbers and i could actually be a winner, a small winner, but a winner. >>gretchen
-american constituency is the biggest base. if she runs in 2016, barack obama will be gone from the scene. it's a constituency where he crushed all of his opponents in 2012. >> she will be continuing with these policy speeches next month taking on national security. talking about a speech on national security. read between the liechbs on that one. what do you bhak it? >> she's going to write a book. she's going to be very prominent. while she says she has not made a decision on 2016, she tells her aids her inclination is not to run. she's doing everything she has to do to run. she can wait later than anybody else to say i'm running should she decide to run. she can wait later than anybody else. this keeps her out there and keeps her prominent in the national debate, keeps her prominent in talking about the issues that will matter in 2016. it's a signal, look, i can't give you that answer. you'll wait a year or more for that. i'm going to be out there and be in the mix, don't worry about it. >> don't worry about it. you will hear from me. i do want to ask you about this is an important decisio
states. the obama administration has said the use of chemical weapons would cross a red line. what happens now? we have live team coverage overseas and washington. let's start first with arwa damon live from beirut. what's the latest you're hearing, arwa? >> reporter: those images are so hard to watch and it's absolutely horrible scenes of lifeless children, doctors trying to desperately resuscitate others. i just spoke via skype with a doctor who says he is in syria, we cannot independently verify that. he said they're struggling in primitive conditions, unable to attend to all of those who are suffering the side effects of what he is also saying was a chemical attack. they look atroprine and oxygen. another volunteer medics throughout all of this, if you'll remember, he was describing the symptoms he personally felt. he said he initially lost vision and then he lost all feeling in his body, and at one point, he collapsed. now this is not the first time that we've heard claims of chemical weapons being used in syria. it is, however, the first time that the death toll from any of t

surrounding the affordable care act as president obama delays part of the law that keeps consumer costs down. we'll have live team coverage now with fox news in martha vineyard and liz macdonald here in new york. why is this limit on the out of pocket expenses delayed? >> actually, it turns out some insurer use separate companies to administer medical coverage in drug benefit, and the computers don't talk to each other and because different companies have different limits on out of pocket costs, they have to figure out a way to keep track of all the out of pocket costs that people are incurring. the result is some people with complex chronic medical conditions like multiple sclerosis pay more than they would have if the $6300 a person cap was in place. this delay imposing a limit on out of pocket costs was actually approved in february, but it was buried in legal and bureaucratic language on the labor department website, no one noticed until the "new york times" picked it up recently. >> interesting. what's been the republican response to all this? >> well, some say it's broof the affordable
